Prohormone Spotlight: 1-Andro

If regular supplements are no longer enough for you and you have entered the world of prohormones, you might want to look into taking 1-androstene 3b-ol,17-one, or 1-Andro for short. 1-Andro is a prohormone that isn’t banned by the FDA or DEA, so if you’re looking to get some serious results in a legal way, here you go! It is a non-methylated prohormone and doesn’t convert to estrogen or DHT which means there’s plenty of benefits, with minimal side effects. Some of you may be wondering how this prohormone is legal, well it just wasn’t necessary to ban under Obamas’ Designer Steroid Control Act of 2014. Here’s the full act along with the names of prohormones that are banned. 

If you’re looking to learn more about 1-Andro, read on!

Bio Hacks to Start Your New Year Healthy

Getting your health in balance to help you live your best life is a new years resolution we can all relate to. We often associate supplements with super ripped bodybuilders and people who have a lifestyle centered around fitness. But the truth is, supplements, by the broader definition, are something that can combat health issues across the board, not just weight loss and muscle gain.

The term ‘biohacking’ out of Silicon Valley is expected to become a more popular and widely adapted term in 2018. Biohacking is the practice of experimenting with changes in your lifestyle and diet to “hack” your body’s biological composition in order to feel your best self.

Tips to Stay Healthy Over the Holidays 

Being at home with family over the holidays isn’t always joyful. It can sometimes be stressful. It’s not all gingerbread decorating and alcoholic eggnog. 

And if it is, stress isn’t going to be the only threat to your health over the holidays. It’s dairy-rich high-carb calories, staying indoors by the fire rather than going to the gym and that plate of cookies and milk the kids left for Santa.

I know what you’re thinking, you’re really just set up to fail at being healthy this time of year. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be that way. Just because it’s the season of giving doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of yourself. Here are our tips to stay healthy over the holidays:

Everything You Need To Know About CLA Supplements 

There’s been a lot of hype around CLA supplements lately. So Black Diamond Supplements decided to write a blog post answering the frequently asked questions around CLAs and explain in detail, what they are and what exactly they claim to do. Here are the questions we’ll be answering: 

-What is CLA?

-How does it work?

-Just how effective is it? 

-What are the side effects?

-Do I really need to take it? 

CLA

If you walk into any supplement store, without a doubt, you will find CLA supplements. 

This supplement is advertised as something that will boost your metabolism, better your body composition, and help build muscle mass and strength. So, to those who spend their lives in the gym, this sounds like the ultimate supplement, but let’s dig deeper and find out a little more background on this product. 

CLA stands for conjugated linoleic acid, and you can find it in most meats and dairy. A lot of people think that if something is found in food that is a staple in most diets, then why would they need a supplement for it? Well, the average diet will only supply between 15-174mg a day, while the recommended and scientifically studied dose ranges between three to six grams a day. So is it worth buying or not? Read on to find out.

How to Lose Fat Lifting Weights

Let’s be honest. Cardio isn’t for everyone. The thought of running for hours on a treadmill doesn’t always motivate us to get to the gym. 

Most are familiar with the widely-known rule that cardio is for losing weight and weight-lifting is for gaining muscle. But, let’s dig deeper into this. I want you to ask yourself: do I want to decrease the number on the scale or do I want to lose fat and become a leaner, more toned, athletic version of myself? These are two separate goals, the latter involves strength training and may not equate to a lower number on the scale. If you’re laser-focused on getting down to a certain weight with solely cardio, you may sacrifice muscle mass in the process, and this can actually sabotage weight-loss. 

Jason Stella, corrective exercise specialist (NASM-CES) and head of training at LifeTime Fitness explains: “Muscle contraction is a primary engine of fat loss. The more muscle mass you have to contract, the more calories you can burn.”

Women, in particular, often run and diet and run some more and still have a hard time achieving the results they desire. Often, strength training is the missing piece to your fitness puzzle. Remember that your goals should always be tied to a level of physicality that has you feeling your best; not necessarily a number on a scale. 

Whether you’re not exactly a fan of cardio, or you’re looking for strength training exercises to break through a plateau in progress, this article is for you. Read on to learn ways to lose fat, tone up and get lean without focusing primarily on cardiovascular exercise.
